agreed on both

He lasted long enough to ruin US openwheel, give the keys to the term racing to nascab and I don't care anymore. I live less than a ten minute walk from the Toronto start finnish line and will be far away that weekend. I have nothing for any of these idiots.

They should have fired him in 1995.

At that time CART was second only to F1.

Now the IRL is a last resort to those who really bite. I recall an INDY 500 when 5 CART racers took the top 5 spots and spot 6 went to a taxi driver and the IRL teams were a joke.

So he destroyed a great but flawed series (as is every series) and replaced it with a piece of crap and ran down the INDY 500 to a whatever event. Looks like he was allowed 14 years too many to cause destruction.

All too true. I worked in Champ Cars when IRL came along to 'keep it American', so now a Japanese engine, Italian car and struggle to get 20 on the grid AFTER unification. Ten years back you 27 racing in CART, why ruin it? Oit took time but such a waste, and I'm from the UK! Do love NASCAR tho ......
